Vanguard S&P 500 ETF (VOO)

Vanguard S&P Index Fund is one of the best S&P ETFs available. In this review, we’ll take a look at the fund performance (share—not stock—historical price, holdings, dividends, expense ratio and tax efficiency), and the alternatives (VOO vs. SPY, VOO vs. IVV, VOO vs. VFINX Admiral shares, VOO vs. VTI and VOO vs. VXF) available to.

As all the offshore brokerages seem to only offer the ETF version of Vanguard.

Analyst Report

The S&P is the benchmark index by which many investors compare their returns. Many index investors use the S&P (or the total stock market index) as the backbone of their portfolio. Warren Buffett has repeatedly said that ordinary investors should invest in an S&P index fund for the stock portion of their [ ].

Vanguard investors can invest in Vanguard ETFs commission-free. I highly discourage short-term trading, especially in a taxable account, but if I were to trade, I would use SPY. It has the largest daily trading volume, and most likely the tightest bid-ask spreads. Remember that Fidelity does not allow commission-free trades on their ETFs for short-term trading they will charge a short-term trading fee if you hold the ETF for less than 30 days. Vanguard does allow you to trade VOO up to 25 times within a 12 month period , after which they may lock you from trading the security for 60 days.

Great breakdown of the various indices available. It seems they almost have the same holdings given both are market weighted and thus heavily composed of the largest companies anyway. I basically have tax loss harvested from one to the other. But curious which would you prefer if stuck with one. I have owned SPY in the past. I enjoy slicing up my portfolio into small cap value etc. I do own some QQQ. Subscribe to receive exclusive content and new post notifications.
